Tomorrow, July 15, 2010, I’m giving the plaintiff’s perspective in a webinar CLE titled: Pleadings Standards Post-Iqbal: Meeting Tougher Plausibility Standards in Commercial Litigation.


If you’ve not yet had the pleasure of litigating the heck out of Iqbal v. Ashcroft, this CLE is a good opportunity to get some case cites and perspective.

If you have litigated the heck out of it, you might still find some use in it (e.g., my part of the presentation cites 16 plaintiff-friendly cases interpreting Iqbal, including opinions from the Second, Third, Fifth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, and D.C. Circuits) and you’ll get 1.5 hours CLE credit from the comfort of your home or office.

The reviews for last year’s presentation were quite positive (there’s some quotes on the linked website), and one of the highly-informative slides from my part is embedded in this post.

Alternatively, if you’re not up for a 1.5 hour CLE, you can spend a few hours perusing some poor, poor federal clerk’s nearly 300-page summary of all the recent decisions on Iqbal for the Federal Rules Committee, or perhaps the Administrative Office’s statistical analysis of motions to dismiss since Iqbal.
